IN THE MIX HIP HOP DANCE AND IPAD MUSIC-VIDEO CREATION
In the Mix is an innovative program that provides a unique opportunity for children to explore what’s new in dance, music and internet technology. This experience is very much about developing mind and body, and gaining confidence and social skills. Students will learn a brief hip-hop dance to share with parents at the last class, and will also work collaboratively in small groups to create one-of-a-kind music-videos, using iPads supplied by In the Mix. Kids get to be Directors, DJs, and Choreographers while producing their own custom HipHop music-videos! Students have full creative freedom yet are guided appropriately to help them progress and spice up their videos and dancing. At the end of the session, students can securely view their videos at the In the Mix website. To learn more about this program visit www.inthemixprogram.com.

In The Mix Kids’ Yoga and Mindfulness Program:
Welcome to our special Kids’ Yoga Program, which is entirely dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children. It doesn’t matter how young a child is, like adults they need ways to release stress, and Yoga and mindfulness are a perfect outlet! Not only do they provide a way to channel negative energy, it allows the child to develop greater strength of both mind and body. This specialized kids’ program intertwines the foundation of the Yoga practice with stories, music and props with great emphasis on health awareness, self-confidence, compassion and tolerance for others. We also help children find relaxation through techniques involving understanding their own breath, and developing a better awareness of their own bodies. With Kids’ Yoga, your child will make new friends while experiencing the many benefits of Yoga. For them, the journey to discovery is off to a great start!
